You can't keep good guys locked down! We're back and just as mediocre as ever. Speaking of, How about The Little Things? We'll talk you out of watching that along with WW84.

#41 - The End (2020)
We're Back! After a much-needed break, we're back to cover all the topics that matter. What's the highest-grossing film in Croatia? Did we really need home alone to tell us not to be mean to old people? What's worth watching in the final days of this misery marathon known as 2020? We'll be switching it up for the new year and having a show or two a month., Hopefully, in-person and off of Zoom ASAP. Thank you for being a friend. Your heart is true; you're a pal and a confidant: Merry Christmas and happy new year.

#38 - I Got Nothing
On this week's lesser-known show about nothing, The guys manage to make a Lord of The Rings length episode of meandering nonsense and love every minute of it. Might do it again next week. What else do have to do? Before I forget, Let's play a game. Tune into CFS every week for clues if you want in on CFS Trivia. I'll be handing out a dope prize on August 8th just because you guys kick ass!

#35 - Mundane With Heart
We need to talk. This isn't working for me and I think it's time we move on. I mean, it's not like between the graveyard of cancellations, shows that have overstayed their welcome, werewolves not getting their fair shake, and spending all of your time "world-building" that you ever have time to work on us. All you do is talk about the walking of the talking of the dead. You're more concerned with debating if 30 Rock is better than Parks and Rec or if True Detective is better than Fargo. We'll always have the good times. Like, when Aaron got punked by Ania during this recording, Chris Hemsworth beating children, and definitively putting to rest the great Star Wars debate but I think this has run its course. I need some space. maybe a trial week-long separation. Either way, I wish you all the best and I hope we can still be friends.

Giving you the least we can since 2019! Kinda phoned it in this week. (where else will you get this kind of honesty?) However, Max gives us a reboot update.

#28 - Yellow Wallpaper & About that Brit Marling op-ed...
It was all good in February. Truth be told, I treated editing these episodes like a chore. After all, it takes a lot of effort to make us sound like we know what we're talking about. I must say that it's refreshing to listen back and have a few laughs to myself while we hit the pause button and take stock of what's important. It was great to have Vanna and Danny on to speak about their short film, The Yellow Wallpaper and the lessons they learned making a project on a small budget. Later, we were joined by Audrey and the devil herself, Kristen McCabe, to discuss Brit Marling's recent op-ed in the New York Times. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/07/opinion/sunday/brit-marling-women-movies.html We're not going anywhere... No, Literally we're staying inside for the time being but we're still the F*cking scene! - Wash your hands - keep your distance but keep your loved ones close - catch up on that show you've been meaning to check out - stay tuned All the best, -Wan
